2020 FLAME Conference-March 5 & 6

The Foreign Language Association of Maine (FLAME), in collaboration with the Maine Department of Education, invites language teachers and other interested educators to submit proposals for 60- or 75-minute workshop sessions on topics of modern and classical language interest, to be held on March 6, 2020 at the Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland, Maine.  

Why Become a Presenter?

  • It’s a great opportunity to share with colleagues!
  • It looks good on your curriculum vitae!
  • You can earn up to 10 CEUs for your preparation of your presentation!
  • You get a nifty ribbon!

And remember, you don’t have to present alone! Swap shops and panel discussions are also desired, as are sessions conducted in the target languages. But if we can’t convince you to become a presenter, please encourage your colleagues to submit a proposal.

To be considered, your proposal must be received by December 1, 2019. Please email Mary Lord at with your completed form attached. Please be sure to make a copy of the form-do not write directly on the original.

Registration Fees: The FLAME Conference registration fee for Friday, March 6, 2020 will be waived for up to two presenters per session. If attending the dinner and keynote on Thursday evening, presenters must still pay the registration fee for Thursday, March 5, 2020.

Membership Dues: Presenters who are currently teaching in Maine are required to be current members of FLAME. The membership dues are waived only for presenters from other states. 

Other Funding: FLAME does not pay an honorarium, provide funds for a substitute teacher, or provide reimbursement for travel and printing expenses.

Materials: Please note that you should plan and bring materials for an audience of 50. If printing of materials is a hardship for you, please contact Mary Lord, and help can be provided. It is very frustrating for workshop participants if there are not enough handouts available. You can also provide a link to share materials electronically.
